I disagree. Patents and Copyright needs to be transferable under the current system so it can be used by those who would actually use it rather than be locked up for 100+ years without anyone being able to use it. Though, I suppose licenses could be used, but that would have it's own slew of problems as well.
Here's an excerpt from the article you must have missed: "Moreover, it is of course implemented in software; given that Article 52 of the European Patent Convention explicitly excludes "programs for computers" from patentability, the fact that the EPO granted a patent here is an early example of how it circumvented that exclusion because a computer was used to run that software (well, doh.)"
Also he skipped this really popular question
"The world spent $1735 billion on war in 2012, it would take $135 billion to totally eradicate poverty. NASAs budget is around half a penny of an individual persons tax dollar Why do we spend so much in war and so little in education and exploration?"
I'm afraid that I own a patent on all litigation, ever. Fortunatly my licensing fee for the right to sue is a mere $40k per law suit, as well as $10k per working hour by all lawyers under your hire. And let's of course not forget the licencing fee for my patent on procedures and methods for commencing and holding court proceedings, that will require a small number of payments equal to $1million per day(s) of hearings.
